Former student president gets kicked out of university


Joel Cosgrove really is an idiot. He has been disenrolled from Victoria University where he has been studying for the last... well few years actually. He has been thrown out - along with Alastair Reith - for staging an anti war protest at Victoria where they were filmed burning a NZ flag.The group say they were attempting to highlight New Zealand's involvement in wars of aggression from the Boer War, the World Wars, Vietnam and Afghanistan.

The students are rejecting the university's actions, saying they will continue to attend all their classes.

update It appears that they won't be able to sit mid-year exams but will be able to re-enrol for the second trimester in July.
